Summary:
Animal protein production systems are reaching production capacity limits due to their associated ecological detriments. Therefore, a global shift towards an ecologically sustainable alternative is vital, and hence exploring the scope of market for such alternatives.“ Cultured meat”, or ex vivo cultivated meat, may indeed serve as a viable alternative. However, although this method aims to lessen environmental woes, one current drawback is the ambiguity of consumer acceptance. This study addresses this concern through calculus of potential markets. Indeed, through surveying about 5,000 people worldwide, with focused populations in the United States and University undergraduates, statistically significant results of positive consumer interest in cultured meat were attained. After survey completion, over 75% of participants expressed interest in eating cultured meat (interested in “probably” or “definitely” eating cultured meat). Ultimately, this novel study ought to serve as a foundational framework for catalyzing funding towards privatized and academic research on cultured meat.
